Stacey from Embracing Change gave this French buffet a stunning makeover that you won't believe! She used Liquorice, Natural Wax, some new fabric inserts, and new hardware to restore it's original beauty.
I saw beauty in this piece immediately although I am not sure everyone would have agreed.
In fact, my husband gave it a long look once I brought it home and he was quiet for a few seconds. Then he said “I am glad you see the beauty in these pieces because I just don’t see it.” Sounded like a challenge to me.
Granted this one was a sad sight…it had interesting orange fabric panels on the doors, veneer was chipping everywhere and the hardware was falling off. It was dirty and old and needed some serious love. I spent one day gluing, clamping, filling veneer, sanding and punching out those funky panels. Then the next day I got to work.
I used Country Chic’s Liquorice to paint her up and then distressed and sealed her in Country Chic’s Natural Wax.
I was pleased with how awesome the paint coverage was and how well it distressed. This paint seriously rocks my socks off.
I originally planned to use chicken wire in the doors, but I didn’t like how it looked so I chose to go with gathered fabric instead. I added some classic cut glass knobs from D. Lawless Hardware.
Her tiger oak wood top was in fabulous shape so I just used some Hemp Oil on it to restore her natural beauty.
Her transformation was a bit dramatic…I love it! Thanks to Country Chic Paint, she is looking beautiful once more!
Here is one more look:
I would love if you stopped by my blog home at Embracing Change to follow along – thanks for reading!
My name is Stacey and I blog about my creative endeavors at Embracing Change. I dabble in blogging about my family and my faith as well as some crafts and recipes although my blog is primarily about painting and bring old and ugly furniture back to life. I love finding an old, ugly piece of furniture and making it pretty and new. It is my creative passion! My day job is being a mommy to two sweet girls and married to a pastor working alongside of him in ministry. Painting is what I do in my free time and for fun. My hobby has developed into a side creative endeavor as well and I have established The Blessed Nest whereby I now sell my creations to those that also have a love for all old things made new!
